In the "celebs my height" section he is listed in the female search under 5'3.5".
[Editor Rob: I have assigned Sammy his proper sex now :)]

A Man Called Adam is really an excellent performance by him, I'd send the DVD to you Rob if I could but you'd probably not be happy giving your address as I might tell G :-)
[Editor Rob: I don't really mind about that, I'm sure I gave it to him anyway!

It's like tradesmen - the guy's who put their home phone number on their van are from experience the type of guy's who are more trustworthy or easier to deal with than the guy with just a mobile number or 2 on his van ;)

Rob can you add a photo and films like Porgy and Bess, A Man Called Adam, and Salt and Pepper.

He was the smallest of the "RAT PACK". In those days (or rather, that era) nobody gave a hoot about height! These days 2" can be a huge factor!! At around 5'4", He got the Voice and he got the girls...a real CANDY MAN!
